TDP candidate’s nomination rejectedMay 14th, 2008 - 12:11 am ICT by admin
Hyderabad, May 13 (IANS) Election authorities rejected the nomination of opposition Telugu Desam Party (TDP) candidate from one assembly constituency as he was convicted in a criminal case. Nomination of Ramesh Rathod from Khanapur assembly constituency in Adilabad district was rejected by the Election Commission officials during scrutiny Tuesday.
By-elections to four Lok Sabha and 18 assembly constituencies are scheduled to be held May 28.
Rathod was last year sentenced to two years’ imprisonment by a local court for attacking the officials of forest department. He has challenged the sentence in a higher court.
The election authorities took the decision on complaints by some local people. TDP sources said anticipating this, Rathod’s wife had also filed the nomination as an independent candidate.
